  • “We went as a family of 11 and there is plenty of space for everyone.”

    Lovely location, very quiet. The house is very well equipped and everything of good quality. We had a lovely week and would definitely visit again.

About the property

A stunning, designer detached country house situated in 2.3 acres of grounds in the village of Bradnop near Leek.

This superb house is perfect for a large family or group of friends looking for a bit of luxury to come home to after a day exploring the nearby Peak District.

The tastefully furnished entrance hall is an impressively large boot room, ideal for getting out of your walking boots and drying the dogs.

Then pass through to the large contemporary kitchen with a breakfast and dining area which is a fantastic place to gather while you discuss the day’s busy itinerary.

The sitting room is beautifully finished with high quality sofas and French windows opening out to the garden.

There’s a woodburning stove to set the atmosphere while you sit and chat or enjoy a favourite movie together.

The contemporary design and quality continues through to the light and airy bedrooms, one of which opens out to a huge decked roof terrace where you can step out of bed and greet the morning sun or enjoy a glass of wine as the sun dips over the horizon.

As you’d expect, the bathroom is very high end with a designer roll-top bath and large walk-in shower.

Across the courtyard is a separate garage annexe which has been cleverly adapted to create a first floor apartment with a double bed and a sitting area with a sofa bed, TV and games console making it a great place to park teenagers or a place to break away from the madding crowd.

The annexe also has a contemporary shower room, so it is completely self-contained if required.

Sit out on the patio and enjoy a barbecue as the kids run off the last of their energy.

The grounds are beautiful with countryside all around and a babbling river flows along the bottom of the garden where you can watch the wildlife and nod to the occasional passing farmer crossing the ford.

Tempting though it might be to spend your whole time here, there is plenty to do within easy reach, whether it's riding at the equestrian centre just up the road, exploring Leek, Hartington or Bakewell or driving the short distance into the breathtakingly beautiful Peak District with the Roaches nearby.

A luxurious retreat to be enjoyed any time of year.
